Park
“Frick Park is an awesome 640 acre city park, easily accessible from this place. You can walk or drive the 0.6 miles to the entrance at the Frick Environmental Center, where you can walk or jog on any of the plentiful (hilly) hiking trails. There are also two playground areas at the edges of the park (one is the "Blue Slide Playground" made semi-famous by rapper Mac Miller). ”

Park
“Frick Park is the largest municipal park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, covering 644 acres. It is one of Pittsburgh's four historic large parks. Known as Pittsburgh’s woodland park for its extensive trails throughout steep valleys and wooded slopes, Frick Park is an ideal escape from the noise of the city. Birding enthusiasts love to visit Clayton Hill, where well over 100 species of birds have been recorded. Children flock to the famous Blue Slide Playground and learn about nature at the Frick Environmental Center. The park also features red clay tennis courts, baseball fields, and the only public lawn bowling green in Pennsylvania.”
